The Long Overdue Break of the Super Bowl Field Goal Record

The record for the longest field goal in Super Bowl history stood for more than 30 years. 49ers rookie Jake Moody is the new owner of that record after setting a 55-yarder. The regular season record holder is Justin Tucker who made a 66-yard attempt against Detroit a couple of years ago. Many of the longest field goals in NFL history have been 60 yards or more which is why it’s surprising to see Moody set a Super Bowl record from 55 yards. We are approaching a point where hitting a 60-yard field goal will be considered a walk in the park. Regardless of how the rest of Moody’s career goes, one thing he’ll always have is that he once held the record for the longest field goal made in Super Bowl history.
